IT’S A WONDERFUL LIFE, in which Jimmy Stewart plays a man who wishes he had never been born, and gets his wish, became a Christmas staple on TV after its copyright lapsed. Fans of the 1946 classic will enjoy the recollections of actor Jimmy Hawkins, who played George Bailey's 4-year-old son and has written three books about the movie. He's helped out here by others involved, including Karolyn Grimes, who played ZuZu and who contributes minutiae about the movie. Most of the information is familiar, but the interviews are interesting. The tape also delves into the history of the original short story--which the author sent to friends as a Christmas carol.
